The Marvel Cinematic Universe has officially entered Phase 4 with the release of WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and the upcoming Black Widow. But it's always worth remembering how we got to this point. This summer, Marvel Studios is launching The Infinity Saga collection, a merchandise line that spans the three-phase storyline that began with 2008's Iron Man and wrapped up with 2019's Avengers: Endgame.
Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios and chief creative officer of Marvel, endorses the entire Infinity Saga line. “Seeing how, over the past decade, the Infinity Saga has inspired a generation of fans with super heroic stories and aspirational characters that the world has come to admire and love has been a dream come true,” Feige tells Yahoo Entertainment exclusively. “Our Infinity Saga collection masterfully celebrates these heroes, unforgettable moments, trials, and tribulations of the most storied journeys in cinematic history and allows fans to be able to bring these treasured memories home to celebrate our shared history like never before.”
Feige also signed his name to the foreword that begins the the lushly-illustrated Abrams Books-published tome, The Story of Marvel Studios. Written by Tara Bennett and Paul Terry, the two-volume book boasts exclusive interviews with top MCU talent and never-before-seen behind the scenes concept art.
For obvious reasons, Robert Downey Jr.'s dearly departed Iron Man is front and center in the Infinity Saga merch. Relieve Tony Stark's heroic final moments with Hasbro's replica of his Thanos-killing Nano Gauntlet ($124.99), which has pulsating light effects and sounds inspired by the film.
Tony — and his life (and crimefighting) partner, Pepper Potts — is also heavily featured amongst the latest additions to the Hasbro Legends action figure line. Iron Man comes paired with Thanos in an Infinity Saga two-pack ($26.99), while Pepper pops up alongside Captain Marvel in a separate set ($52.99).
You can also rewind time to revisit Tony's earlier adventures, like his brawl with Whiplash in Iron Man 2. Sideshow Collectibles has a richly detailed 1/6th-scale collectible figure of Iron Man's Mark V suit, complete with the signature suitcase.
Meanwhile, Lego recreates Iron Man's very first supervillain battle with the Iron Monger Mayhem playset ($39.99), featuring a mini-Jeff Bridges as bearded bad guy, Obadiah Stain.
But the Infinity Saga collection isn't just all Iron Man, all the time. Lego's other new Marvel-themed playsets include the Black Panther Dragon Flyer ($19.99) from the genre-transforming 2018 blockbuster, Captain American and Hydra Face-Off ($9.99) from The Winter Soldier, the Guardians' Ship ($149.99) from Guardians of the Galaxy and the Endgame final battle ($69.99).
But the crown... uh, stone, in Lego's portion of the Infinity Saga collection is its brick-by-brick recreation of Thanos's Infinity Gauntlet ($69.99), which includes moveable fingers and a descriptive tablet that you can display along with the finished piece.
Last, but not least, Marvel Studios is re-releasing multiple Infinity Saga movie titles in new Blu-ray collector's editions. All three Iron Man, Captain America and Thor movies will be available in individual collections, along with the four Avengers movies, the two Guardians films and the Ant-Man and the Wasp's twin adventures. It's a reminder of why everyone loves Marvel... 3000.
The Infinity Saga Collection will be available at most major retailers this summer.
